    Hello everyone, I just bought the unlocked/Jail broken 16G (1st generation) and firmware 1.1.4. Right now, I can call, go to internet, play summerboard, customize, installer and so on. EXCEPT,when I plug in my iphone to computer, both pc computer and Itune are not dectecting my iphone. I know that my usb cable work well because at that time I plug in my friend's unlocked iphone 8G in to my computer, and it detected my friend's iphone. I don't know why. I just do everything to try itunes and my computer dectect it. There are all of ways that I have researched from all resources from all of website:
    1) I installed the newest itunes 8, but it would not work for me
    2) I tried to restore by holding Home button and power for 10 seconds, and released power but still held home buttton, but this way didn't help me out even I tried on either itunes 7.7 or itunes 7.6 and itunes 7.5.
    3) I went to Computer
    Management=> service=> stop "Apple Mobile Device" then start it again. After that, I opened itunes and plug in my iphone but this way still didn't help me out.
    4) I also tried to use Ziphone and hopefully Ziphone software could dectect my iphone, but it didn't dectect my iphone because I think Ziphone can dectects it when Itunes recognizes first.
    5) One more thing, I should mention when I held a home button while the logo apple were appearing. Then I looked at in my screen iphone, i saw the picture of the USB cable and the arrow pointing to itunes appeared, but my pc computer didn't pop up anything.

    how does he update if he cant detect the phone!! God some ppl are dump at helping others.

    The iphone has 1 plug its for 2 things Data plug and charging plug , overtime the flex cable that connects the homebutton to the board and the power goes bad its one cable .That cable sometimes wears out and you can charge the phone but cant detect it thro the pc .

    My recommendation is if its under warranty whipe it and take it to apple .Or have that cable replaced.

    Excellent Advice Thank you!

    My iphone all of a sudden was unresponsive, wouldn't sync, or charge,... read the forum - as a result, got out a spare cable... .and voila... it is all good! Apple icon popped up as soon as I plugged it in with the other cable. The first cable must be shot! Thanks again!
